The Cult of Ethics (Good&Evil)

This is mostly a restatement of something I read by Watchman Nee, Chinese Christian living in the 1900s, FooChow, China.  Interestingly, this is most likely where my family came from.  But, I digress.

In the Garden, Adam and Eve were not to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.  What I understand Brother Nee to be saying is that really there is not Good and Evil.  By eating of the tree, we have come to frame life into those categories.  But rather it should be life itself we seek.  After all, the opposite tree was the Tree of Life.

As our LORD said to the rich young ruler, why do yo ask what is good?  … if you want to enter life, obey the commandments … (Matthew 19:17)

Basically there is only life, the Life of GOD, and that can only be lived by obeying the commandments of the LORD.  Obedience is key.  Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Life.  Obey the LORD>
